UFC: Max Holloway responds to the rumours of him suffering a stroke and getting knocked out in training - Max Holloway

UFC Featherweight champion Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway is back to feeling himself and recovering from the health issues he faced just days before his fight at UFC 226 against Brian ‘T-City’ Ortega.

Holloway was reportedly suffering from ‘concussion’ like symptoms. Holloway was rushed to the hospital suffering from slurred speech and impaired vision. After spending the entire night, Holloway was released.

Few weeks after, a frightening rumour that Holloway had suffered a stroke started circulating around the social media. Champ Holloway however shut that down.

“When we were in the ER with doctors the word ‘stroke’ never came up,” Holloway said. “I was in disbelief when people were trying to use that. My entire team wasn’t in the ER, so when we heard the rumors come out I thought it was just clickbait. If it was a stroke or heart problem or whatever people were gossiping about, how in their right mind would the doctors discharge me from the hospital? I was never scared I was never going to fight again. It never crossed my mind I might not fight again.”

Another rumour that Holloway suffered a concussion due to getting knocked out came up. Holloway brushed it off as well.

“There’s rumors going around that I got knocked out in training and I wish it was that so we could just write it down and be like, ‘Look, this is what happened,’” Holloway said. “And we could move on from it. That didn’t happen. We had hard training days, but I didn’t suffered a concussion at all. I wish the answer was that simple.”
